Our PiggyToes loooooooooove scones and just about every weekend, we walk to town to get a few. After surfing Pinterest late last night, I combined a few recipes to make up my own and was more than pleased how my own version turned out! Some recipes I found had lemon zest in it (eh- I’ve tried it before), others had yogurt (I didn’t have any), and one had sour cream (hmmm)…
But this recipe…
Oh my heavens.
No more spending $12 on 4 scones on weekend mornings; I finally made a blueberry scone better than Starbucks.
That’s right. You read it.
In fact, Starbucks and I should have a bake-off. I’m prepared.
This… my lovely little bakers… is my Better than Starbucks Blueberry Scones! Perfect from the first to the last bite and you too will find that you should join me in Starbucks Scone Bake Off after these come out of your oven ; )

What’s in it?
1/2 cup Butter (cut in cubes)
2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup 2% milk
1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup Blueberries
4 Tbsp. Sugar
How do you make it?
Preheat oven to 375.
Cut the butter in cubes and set aside.
In mixer, mix on LOW: flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.
Add one butter cube at a time and slowly add them all until it looks coarse.
In separate bowl, mix together egg, milk and vanilla extract.
Slowly add wet ingredients to the mixture.
DO NOT OVERMIX!!! You just want most of it to stick together.
Stir in fresh blueberries.
On counter, sprinkle flour.
Get one big ball in your hands and divide it.
Put one ball on counter and flatten to about 1/2-3/4 of an inch.
With a butter knife, cut in 4′s.
Repeat with the second ball.
Place 8 triangles on baking sheet and brush the ‘TOP’ with egg/sugar mixture.
Bake for 17 minutes.
Brew a cup of coffee.
